3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat odd blend of various workout techniques September 10, 2007
On the cover of the DVD case, the Poise: Core Training workout is described as "Best of Pilates, Dance & Martial Arts." Created by Teri Jory, POISE stands for Pilates, Power and Posture--Oneness of Body and Mind--Inspiration--Sculpted and Sexy Body--Energized. The result is a rather odd little blended workout with a hint of Pilates and ballet barre work (I didn't detect any martial arts). Throughout the workout, Teri works with one background exerciser at a time in what looks like a dance studio. The DVD is well-chaptered: you can choose to play the full workout or select "Exercises" to choose any of the six chapters.

Teri begins the workout with a 5 1/2 minute warm-up performed entirely in a plie/deep squat position. Here Teri leads you through simple stretching moves such as shoulder rolls, neck rolls, and back extensions. Next comes "First Position," in which Teri spends about 1 1/2 minutes explaining proper positioning while lying on the floor (basically, the same concept as Pilates neutral spine). She then moves into the actual workout with the "Abs-Pelvic Floor-Legs" segment. In this 16-minute chapter, Teri leads her assistant through Pilates-like movements such as knee-ins and a teaser-like sequence. In-between the two sides, there are a few leg stretches plus one unique move that I felt was particularly effective, an outer leg lift performed while lying in a reclined twist (ie, an L-shaped position). The following chapter is "Pelvic Floor Release & Arms." Here Teri has her assistant come to all fours for some cat/cow spinal flows, and then she instructs a kneeling setup for some very slow push-ups (5 minutes).

2.0 out of 5 stars Teri Jory: Poise Fitness Core Training August 4, 2009
By Jenine
I was not impressed with this DVD. There was no martial arts as described, very little dance (only a ballet bar was used very briefly)and it was very slow. I do not feel as though this DVD was challenging whatsoever and it was just too brief. I did not like it at all. I thought this DVD would really push me to the next level, but it was very boring and not challenging at all. Also, the camera views made it impossible to see the position of the models feet during the ballet bar portion...who has a ballet bar anyway? Even if you use a sink or chair as she suggests it is very hard to do this without being able to see how their feet are positioned.
